New York Retailer Rise Wants Sneakerheads to Rap for a Chance to Buy the Adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2
As plenty of sneaker retailers around the globe are packed with sneakerheads trying to get raffle tickets for a pair of the highly anticipated adidas Yeezy Boost 350 V2 sneakers—that come out this Saturday—one retailer in New York looks to do things differently with its release by using an online competition. If you're a rapper, you may want to listen closely.
In a unique twist, popular New York retailer, RISE, will not only allow its customers to get in-store raffle tickets days before the release, but for those following the New York retailer on Twitter, the store has come up with a clever idea for its followers to get a chance to cop the shoes online. Similar to their 750 Boost release earlier this year, RISE is asking its followers to send out a tweet from their personal account that includes the @RISENY tag, U.S. shoe size, hashtag #RiseforYeezy and a 30-second acapella freestyle video. With the online raffle running from today through Friday, Sept. 23, at 12 Noon EST., sneakerheads have a great opportunity here to win the pair by simply spitting their best 16.
Winners will be selected at random and contacted via Twitter DM on Friday, Sept. 23. Head over to Rise45.com to get the full details on the raffle and good luck to all the participants.
